YOUTH EMPOWERMENT
SUMMIT

Founded in 1997 during the National Black Deaf Advocates (NBDA) conference in Washington, DC., the Youth Empowerment Summit (Y.E.S.) is a program that aims to foster and develop emerging leadership skills of Black Deaf and hard of hearing youth across the United States.

Various workshops and sessions are offered to Black Deaf youth aged 13 – 17 years old on a variety of topics such as:

  • Self-advocacy
  • Personal Development
  • Public Speaking

Those programmatic offerings are to equip Black Deaf emerging leaders with tools and experiences to hone their leadership skills to bring back in their own communities.
